Cooking Fried Red Beans:

Step 1: soak the beans.

First of all, red beans must be soaked in cold water overnight. Therefore, you need to start cooking at least a day or in the morning, for example, if you want to fry beans for dinner.

Greens need to be washed and chopped very finely with a knife. The same applies to onions and garlic, peel them and chop into small pieces with a knife.

Step 3: cook the beans.

Fold the beans soaked the day before in a colander, drain the liquid in which it was soaked, then pour it into a deep saucepan and add about 1-1.5 cups pure water. Put everything on fire and cook the beans at medium power until almost ready. At this point, do not salt in any case.

Step 4: fry the beans.

You need to salt the beans only at the end of cooking, literally for 5-7 minutes to end. Then you should pepper and add slices of onions. Fry it all together. The water should evaporate, but if it still remains, then simply drain the excess liquid.
After 5-7 minutes frying, add garlic and all chopped greens to the pan.
Warm all together yet 1-2 minutesstirring occasionally.
Remove the fried red beans from the heat and check if you have enough salt and pepper in the dish.

Step 5: serve the fried red beans.

Fried red beans should be served hot, as an independent dish, for lunch or dinner. Garnish the dish with fresh herbs and eat until cool. It is tasty and satisfying, and contains many useful nutrients. You can add boiled rice or vegetable salad (best from juicy tomatoes with onions).
